Congressman Paul Gosar: Few Americans today know more about what it means to sacrifice for our country than Adolfo Celaya and the other 316 survivors of the USS Indianapolis. Despite living through one of the darkest moments of WWII, Mr. Celaya has continued to inspire countless Arizonans through his eternal patriotism and commitment to serving all Americans. I am proud to support the Town of Florence in their endeavor to recognize Mr. Celaya for his dedicated sacrifice to our nation and his community by designating the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 501 North Main Street in Florence, Arizona, as the “Adolfo ‘Harpo’ Celaya Post Office. "Harpo Celaya enlisted in the Navy at the age of 16 to serve his country in World War II. He was only 17 when the ship he was stationed aboard, the USS Indianapolis, was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine.  The ship sank in 12 minutes plunging Celaya and hundreds of his fellow sailors into the sea where they clung to sparse life vests and rafts, battling dehydration, weather exposure, and shark infested waters for more than four days while awaiting rescue. Of the nearly 1,200 sailors that had been stationed aboard the USS Indianapolis, only 317 survived and were pulled from the sea.Mr. Celaya returned to Arizona and continued a lifetime of service in his community.  He is well-known throughout Arizona for sharing his experiences with high school students as part of the Veterans Heritage Project in an effort to inspire service and keep this incredible story alive.

U.S. Senator John McCain, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, sent a letter to Defense Secretary Ashton Carter today urging him not to move forward with the implementation of any new rules or regulations that would change long-standing policy during the presidential transition and lame-duck session of Congress. The text of the letter is below.

Dear Secretary Carter:

I write to urge you to suspend all efforts on the development and implementation of rules and regulations at the Department of Defense that would change long-standing policy, including with regard to military personnel ratings, standards, uniforms, job titles, and related issues. Many of the Department's recent actions in this regard have been questionable and misguided, and any effort to continue in that direction during a presidential transition and lame-duck session of Congress would be inappropriate. Military personnel policy will continue to be a priority for the defense committees during the next Congress, building on the landmark reforms that have begun over the past two years. This important, bipartisan work will proceed with the transparency, public scrutiny, and congressional oversight that it deserves. Until that time, please refrain from making and further implementing any major policy changes through executive action.

Congressman Paul Gosar: There has been a lot of misinformation spread by special interest groups trying to lock up a massive swath of land in northwestern Arizona. In April of this year, I hosted a listening session in Kingman, AZ to hear the concerns from local members of the community about the proposed Grand Canyon Watershed National Monument. Resounding comments from small business owners, sportsmen, farmers, ranchers, elected officials and other stakeholders adamantly made clear that Arizonans adamantly oppose another massive land grab from the Obama Administration. Overwhelming opposition to this land grab was confirmed in April of this year by a scientific poll which found that 71.6% of Arizonans are against the proposed national monument. Arizonans have made it clear that they oppose this designation and that future management of this area should be driven by a collaborative process that includes local stakeholders. Affected communities deserve to have a voice in the land designation process before President Obama circumvents Congress and bars the people of Arizona from even more land.

U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake statement today applauding Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s effort to modernize the Indian gaming compact and resolve the long-running dispute over the Glendale casino: “We applaud Governor Ducey for his leadership in developing a state-tribal resolution to the Glendale casino issue. We have long opposed the air-dropping of Indian casinos on land that is not contiguous to an existing Indian reservation. The controversy involving the Tohono O'odham gaming facility in Glendale has divided Arizona's Indian tribes for years, and we hope this agreement will heal those divisions and eliminate the need for federal legislation.”

U.S. Senator John McCain Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on the ongoing assault on Aleppo: “As Syrian regime and Russian forces continue their brutal assault on Aleppo, killing scores of civilians and destroying the last remaining hospitals in the eastern part of the city, President Obama and his administration continue to summon only words of condemnation, but no meaningful action. After an exchange of pleasantries with Vladimir Putin in Peru this weekend, President Obama’s answer to the carnage unfolding in Aleppo was to note the need for Secretary of State John Kerry and the Russian foreign minister to continue pursuing initiatives ‘to diminish the violence and alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people.’ The delusion captured by such a statement is nothing short of stunning. After hundreds of thousands of Syrians have been killed in a merciless campaign of inhuman slaughter aided and abetted by Russia, what could possibly give President Obama or any thinking person the impression that Vladimir Putin has any interest in alleviating the suffering of the Syrian people? Putin and Assad will not do what we ask of them out of the goodness of their hearts, or out of concern for our interests, or the suffering of others. They do not want to broker peace. They want to win a war. And American inaction is helping them to do it. Until President Obama and his administration recognize that diplomacy not backed by strength will always be ineffectual at best and dangerous at worst, the carnage in Syria will grind on.”
